I love the ocean. I love the mountains. I love coffee. I love chocolate. I love Ayran. I love vegetables. I love Greek food. I love Nutella…and peanut butter…together. I love scarves, skinny jeans and boots. I love shorts, flipflops and sarongs. I am a bohemian I would like to think…eclectic in so many different ways.

I love to travel. I love Italy, Turkey, Morocco, Canada, of course, and so many more places I have visited and have yet to visit. 

I am passionate. I am sensitive. I am deep. I am thoughful. I am intuitive. I am confident. I am pensive. I am funny. I am beautiful. I am strong. I am determined.

I love airports. I love coffee shops. I love mountain villages. I love the beach. I love Fiats 500s and Vespas. I love postcards. I love silver jewelry. I love short hair. I love my iPhone.

I am a fighter. I am compassionate. I am an advocate. I am all of these and more.

Simply put, I love life. And with this same love, I choose to photograph people, places and situations around me.

Love. Travel. Life. This is me. In a nutshell.

Have a look around my site. I have some travel galleries and blog posts in the links at the top.  

I hope you enjoy what you see and are inspired to see more of our beautiful world. xx

the library of celcus, in the ruins of the city of ephesus.

photographing from the campanile in san marco square - venice, italy || italy travel tour

one of my most favorite personal spots in the world is the city of venice. and one of the things i wanted to do on my last visit there was to go up to the campanile, or bell tower, and see the islands below and lagoon from a bird’s eye view.

it was nothing less than breathtaking to say the least. even though it was a gloomy fall day, the beauty of the view was no less captivating…

a wander through EPHESUS, TURKEY || turkey travel tours

i remember walking down the main road of ephesus on the way to the library of celsus. it was absolutely surreal. i literally stopped in my tracks and imagined. imagined what it would have been like to walk this road every day. 

it was an experience i will never forget.
